October Workshop - More Christmas and Halloween!

 October Workshop - More Christmas and Halloween!

 Here are the projects we made at our last workshop - I am trying to catch up, as promised! If you would like to do the projects yourself, here is what you will need:

Halloween project: (By the way - think out the box ... so to speak ... this would make a great birthday gift box for a 50 year birthday celebration ... just saying ... ha!)

Flower - Z1790 Art Philosophy cartridge
Square - "
 B1460 Halloween Stamp set
Z2173 Slate Ink Pad
1388 Colonial White CS
X5930 Slate CS
X5769 Thistle CS
X7185B Scaredy Cat Paper Pack
Z3011 Scaredy Cat Assortment (for stars)
(I also used a sponge for distressing, a quilling tool Z1795 to roll up my flowers - that makes it so much easier to make those flowers!
Tip for flowers - we do have a tutorial on the flowers, but with the quilling tool, just start rolling up at the end. Then I put some glue on the bottom of the flower (liquid glue or hot glue) hold it together and the flower is done! I like to the let my flower relax a little before I glue. The quilling tool is also great to "fold" the edges of the pedals down. Makes it so much easier - hopes that makes sense :)

Fold-out Wreath Card:

Z3017 Artfully Sent Cricut Collection
C1598 Noel 
D1553 Deck the Halls
B1466 Sweet Salutations
X5931 Champagne CS
X5643 Chocolate CS

Z2103 Bamboo Ink pad
Z2111 Chocolate Ink pad
Z1263 Itty Bitty Sparkles (for me - a must have! Love Bling!)

As you can see I used random stamping on the champagne base card, cut out the wreath, decorated it with bling, stamped the round stamp with a reverse image and then the word image and I was done! This was just about a 5 minute card! Love this new cartridge!

O Holy Night

 A1168 O Holy Night
D1553 Yuletide Greetings

If you are not close to me, we can have a "Party in the Box".  Contact me now if you are interested!

Have fun!


Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!
